Apple has made it official. Acknowledging that we may have seen a few leaks, the company has announced the iPhone 5C. The handset will replace the iPhone 5 in the current lineup of devices, marrying the popular hardware of last year’s popular model with a plastic unibody design available in several color options.

The phone features a 4-inch Retina display, Apple’s A6 processor (the same from the iPhone 5), 8MP camera, and an improved FaceTime HD front-facing camera. It features support for more LTE bands, dual-band WiFi a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0. It will be available in 16GB and 32GB models in blue, white, pink, yellow, and green.

      Probably because it is really not a new device. It’s the same processor with in new colors. Oh wait, they improved the front facing camera… that’s definitely worth the cost of a new phone lol

    Of course the iPhone 5 is discontinued. Apple is smart enough to realize no one would buy a 5s if they kept the iPhone 5 around.
